I was delighted to be invited to paint a mural at Blossom House School's art week this July. Blossom House is a junior and secondary school for children with speech, language and communication difficulties and every summer an artist is invited in to paint a mural on the school grounds in collaboration with the students. My job was to create a mural on the wall of the school's new playing fields on the theme of an orchard (the playing fields former incarnation). I created an abstract pattern inspired by shapes and the seeds of orchard fruits with repeated patterned areas depicting seed and blossom shapes. I delegated different areas to be completed by groups of students and the result was an exciting and vibrant space. Thank you so much to head art teacher Tom Richards for inviting me to be involved.

It's a rare and pleasant thing when a visual artist you admire makes beautiful artwork for a recording artist you love. The hypnotic sounds of Colleen's new album, "The Weighing of the Heart" are captured perfectly once again by the mesmerising, graphic world of Iker Spozio. Seeing and hearing this makes me happy.

I am thrilled to be leading "Drawing from Nature", a three part course with The Idler Academy at three of London's loveliest gardens.
30th June: Kew Gardens
28th July: Chelsea Physic Garden
25th August: Chiswick House Gardens
The natural world has always been a rich provider of inspiration to artists. Drawing from plants, flowers and organic forms in the outdoors is a wonderful way of profoundly engaging with nature and developing your drawings skills. During the summer months in “Drawing from Nature” we step venture outside with our sketchbooks to contemplate and be inspired by nature with our pencils and paintbrushes.
For more details about the course please go to The Idler Academy website.
